Alarket Letter.
Kansas City Stock Yards.
June 7 , 1'JOS.
Small receipts of live stock
began to arrive here last Thurs
day , and tbere was a pretty good
run on Friday. Rains west of
us late last week kept the rivers
here in a threatening state , and
above thedanger line. This has
held down the run today , which
amounts to 8000 cattle , 5500 hogs
and 3000 sheep. There was a
big break in cattle prices at all
the markets last week , account
of liberal supplies , especially ot
quarantine cattle. The daily
newspapers in the big cities all
over the country have exploited
the high price oi beef lately to
such an extent that consumption
has been greatly curtailed , which
together with the heavy runs ,
put buyers in a position to ham
mer the market successfully.
Prices are steady to 10 lower to
day , and whereas a top of SS.OO
or better would have been pos
sible a week ago for fancy steers ,
§ 7.00 would be about the limit
today. Sales of steers ranged
from So.25 to $0.90 here today.
Cows and heifers are also lower
today at $3.00 to $ fi.50. The hog
market opened five higher , but
improved up to the close , when
sales nveraged 15 higher , top
$5.90 , bulk $5.70 to $5.85. Qual
ity of sheep is not very good to
day , market slow , choice spring
lambs worth S6.50 , muttons S-1.00
to $5.25. The stock yards , with
the exception of the quarnntiue
cnttle yards , are in as good coudi-
tiou as before the flood , nnd all the
facilities for handling stock nre in
use. The quarantine cattle yards
will be in operation in a few days ,
if the rivers continue to fall. With
the exception of the Morris plant ,
all the packing houses are in oper
ation and will be able to produce
their usual output within a day or
two. Morris & Co. are buying
live slock for shipment to their
plants at other points. All the
railroads out of Kansas City are
open and outside order buyers are
in the market the same as before
the flood.
Just a Kick.
It seems now from the results
of approved appraisement that a
man's property is worth more than
he is willing to sell it for and that
the county commissioner's do not
agree with the market valuation ,
which is set by the owner. There
are some pieces of property around
town which have really and truly
tried to be sold for several hun
dreds of dollars less than the ap
praisement but the August body
of commissioners have decided
that the property owner is mif.
taken and that he should have
more money and the property is
taxed accordingly. Of course
this is alright from a taxable
standpoint bnt the property own
er doesn't understand it. Per
haps he will in time. Nebraska
